Can a group name begin with a number? #groupname


Bill Brelsford
 

I tried to create a group whose name begins with a number, e.g.
9abc. It failed, saying "That address has already been taken".
However, its webpage, https://groups.io/g/9abc, fails with "Sorry,
but that group does not exist".

Our organization has such a name -- can I create a group with that
name?

Thanks.. Bill

You can have a number. (I belong to a travel group with 1 as the first part of the name.)
I believe there is a period of time that prevents reusing a name. 

At any rate, take a look at this thread - https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/message/20560

Thanks, Frances.  I guess my problem is a previous holder of the name.  We'll have to find an alternative.
